The above has reference to the

fact that nearly all gold miners in
this country are in favor of free
coinage of silver.
A common idea among cane

among a higher class of the

contrary, it is a great mistake to
suppose that nature 'capped the
farmer's spinal column with
head for no other purpose than to
support a pair of ears with which
to hear the dinner horn. In actual
labor the head is just as useful as
the hands, and the great majority
of farmers fully realize and take
advantage of this fact. The brain

"How dear to my heart are the scenes
of my childhood,
When fond recollection presents
them to view."
These lines remind me of my boy
hood days and how dearly I loved my
lady teacher. And the fact is, i bave
not gotten entirely over admiring a
pretty school-ma'am even yet.
Our little city has a fine class of
teachers, and our citizens appreciate
the good work done. In fat, Lebanon
has always been regarded as a seat of
learning. It was a common Buying
in pioneer days that every man who
achieved greatness In Oregon, either got
his stiirt in Yumhlll county or bis
education at the Sautium academy.
(I here wish lo remark parenthetically
that I got n.y start in Yamhill
county). The Hantiam academy has
done a noble work, aud I hope Its use
fulness will increase.
We, as citizens of Lebanon, feel a
great interest in this institute. Its
success means better teaching next
year and the years tn come.
In conclusion, ladles and gentle
men of the teachers' Institute, I again
bid you a cordial welcome lo our city,
and extend to you the hospitality of Its
citizens. We hope to make your visit
so pleasant that yon will 1 willing to

For tbe insignificant sum of ten cents
the curiously inclined might have had
the privilege of seeing recently In a
little museum way down in the French
quarter no less a curio than a hog
snorting a complete and bona fide crop
of grass all over his body "in de place
whar de ha ought to grow."
This sounds like the most prerjoster-
ous thing oh record, writes a corre
spondent of the Philadelphia Times,
and so your correspondent conceived It
to be until he came to the pointof sacri
ficing a dime on the altar of his in
credulity, and lioheld with his own oyeB
tho wonder. The animal appeared to
no a wen-grown nine or ten-mouths'
snout of the Essex breed, with the
usual broad back, chubby neck and
short legs, but from the tip of his nose
to the end of his tail he was bristling
with as perfect fresh green grass as the
finest lawn mixture is warranted to
i ne exhibitor from time to time
clipped a Btray bit of grass from the
hog's abundant crop and passed it
around for inspection. I am willing to
testily on oatn tliat it was the genuine
article and no mistake, and the more I
gazed the more the wonder grew that
one short hog should wear so strange a
hue, till finally my curiosity got the
oeiier oi my purse strings and I
chipped in with some other fellows and
got the man to let us on to the fake.
"Easy enough cxplaiuedV'said the ex
hibitor, as he begun tosproy the animat
ed grass plot with a small rubber bulb
which he held constantly in his hand.
"Just step behind here and take a close
look at the hog. Mind how you hBndle
him, though, or you may break him all
up. Seems to be a pretty good thick
ness of earth 'twixt him and the grass,
dont there? Yes. Well, that's just it.
Grass grows in dirt and nowhere else,
so all you've got to do is to got enough
of it to stick to a hog and he'll moke you
about as good a lawn as you'd find any
"That's straight so far as it goes, but,
of course, there is a pood deal more to
uwure .yuu m wnra up sueu an ar
ticle as this here. In the first place
you have got to get the right kind of a
hog. I generally use a llcrkshire or an
Essex, because they ore good and bronri
and you can feed 'cm up to be pretty
lazy. This is necessary, of course, as a
frisky hog is not liable to hold mud or
Water either for a long time. The next
step is to get the right kind of soil.
"Now, I always use dirt collected
from ant hills, but this is an old dodge
borrowed from t!i-.i Ea.it Indian jug
glers, who can make a mango sprout
and grow six or seven feet in as many
minutes. Scientists say that it is the
formic acid in earth which causes seed
to burst and the germ to develop when
placed therein, and this acid is freely
generated bytho ant. Poura cnpfulof
hot water over a handful of the insects
and it will become as sour as vinegar.
